Would you…?

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 
“If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” 
But…the good Samaritan reversed the question: 
“If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”  

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

The truth that people have their own lives to live explains why they wouldn’t care more for others.
Giving extra mile for those who badly need them seem impossible to exist.
If they do, then it must be grace…it must be Christlike love.

Freed by Grace

And so the Lord says,
    “These people say they are mine.
They honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
And their worship of me
    is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.
Isaiah 29:13

A Dramatic scene showing manicals breaking off a mans hands

Legalistic people should stay in God’s church. 
For although they don’t own the church, though they behave as if they do,
it’s a hospital for dying sinners not a museum for living saints.

Live!

Still, it’s what GOD had in mind all along, to crush him with pain.

The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin

so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life.

And GOD’s plan will deeply prosper through him.

Isaiah 53:10 The Message

No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter what you’ve done,

GOD bled his heart out for you because He loves you.

And He wants you to live.

Grace Moves!

Moving-On-

God’s grace fuels acceptance that paves the way for moving on.
Once we begin to move on, we’ll be surprised to know how far we can go from the point where we thought it was the end. 

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”
So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” —2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)

Mirrored Grace

“I rejected the church for a time because I found so little grace there.I returned because I found grace nowhere else.”

― Philip Yancey

Grace receivers ought to be grace givers.

Grace Wins, Hands Down

Even at the face of oppression and death,

Christ still made every effort to say,

“Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”

Grace Magnified

“God is none other than the Savior of our wretchedness.So we can only know God well by knowing our iniquities…Those who have known God without knowing their wretchedness have not glorified him, but have glorified themselves.” 

— Blaise Pascal

One would appreciate God’s grace most after one has accepted his sinfulness first.
